NEW WILMINGTON, PA – Registration is now open for the third annual Summer Science Splash Camp at Westminster College, a residential camp for students entering grades 7, 8 and 9 in the fall 2019.

Funded by the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation and the II-VI Foundation, the camp will immerse middle-schoolers in full days of scientific observations and experiments. Campers will explore innovative technologies and the natural world in sessions led by Westminster faculty and assisted by Westminster students. In the evenings, students will enjoy games, sports, arts, socializing and more science activities.

Campers do not need to have an advanced understanding of science to attend, but they are highly encouraged to be excited and motivated to learn.

Two sessions will be offered. Session I: July 7-12 or Session II: July 14-19. Registration is available now at

Cost per camper is $450 and includes a week of science instruction, lodging, meals, snacks, supervised activities, camp shirts and a variety of other prizes.

“As scientists, we delight in the discovery, observation and understanding of technology and the natural world and are excited to share our passion with these young campers,” said Dr. Craig Caylor, associate professor of physics and camp director.

The Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation works to encourage physical well-being, inspire teamwork, emphasize the value of education and provide essential life skills to young people in the community.

The II-VI Foundation’s mission is to encourage and enable students to pursue a career in engineering, science and mathematics while maintaining a standard of excellence in that pursuit.
